John Cameron Mitchell will bring The Origin of Love: Songs and Stories of Hedwig to Australia this summer, including a July performance at the Sydney Opera House.

The Tony Award-winning star and creator of Hedwig and the Angry Inch will channel the essence of his “internationally ignored song stylist”—a role he created Off-Broadway and reprised on screen in 2001 and on Broadway in 2015—for four performances beginning with the Adelaide Cabaret Festival on June 22.

The Origin of Love will also tour to the Sydney Opera House (July 6), Arts Centre Melbourne (July 10), and Queensland Performing Arts Centre (July 17).

Mitchell will appear as Hedwig for parts of the cabaret-style show that will feature songs from the musical and behind-the-scenes history into the show’s creation. Mitchell will also preview material from his upcoming musical podcast Anthem. His latest film project, How to Talk to Girls at Parties, starring Nicole Kidman and Alex Sharpe, will premiere May 18 in the U.S.

Mike Potter, who’s been styling Hedwig’s iconic coif since 1994, is joined by costume designer Erik Bergrin. The Origin of Love: Songs and Stories of Hedwig concerts are produced by David M. Hawkins. Musical direction is by Andrew Worboys.
